An unnamed woman, only known as Breathtaker, was a meta-human assassin working for Leviathan.

Biography

Early life

At some point, this woman obtained aerokinetic powers and became a mercenary under the code name "Breathtaker". She had taken many contracts across the world for Leviathan.

Leviathan

She was contacted by Leviathan to kill Elena Torres in Mexico City. Without knowing that Elena had already been murdered, this woman goes to Elena's apartment and finds a woman there that she thinks is Elena. She then throws it out the window using her powers.

Supergirl later appears in the apartment and tries to stop the woman, so she uses her powers to try to smother the heroine. But eventually Supergirl manages to arrest the woman and bring her to the D.E.O. in the United States.[1]

Soon after, Breathtaker is interrogated by Alex Danvers along with Kara and William, who lost his temper and was expelled by Alex.[2]
